Gents,

Frederick G. MARSTON, Private SS/15118

D. of D. and R.S. and C. Commissions, Army Service Corps

Died in France on Wednesday 13 November 1918

Not really after info about the person, but can anyone tell me what "D. of D. and R.S. and C. Commissions" stands for.

Many thanks.

It is possible that the second D is a mistake, in which case it could be:

Directorate of Hiring and Requisitions, Settlement (?) and Claims Commissions

This was the body which dealt with procurement of land, horses, supplies and so on from the French civil authorities, agreement of prices and settlement of claims. It is logical that its clerical and other support should be drawn from the ASC.

Sorry to butt in but this sounds interesting, are there any records of this dept at Kew. I ask because I'm interested in certain sites in France requisitioned by the Brit Army and wonder if I might be able to chase up more info. Mind you, I can see that the entire body of "supplies" must be astronomically large.

thanks

Not that I know of. There does not appear to be a War Diary for the Director of Hirings etc, and a very quick trawl through possibly related classes (e.g. WO107, WO158) did not throw up any likely leads.
